Why does any normal PC user need 500 gigabytes of storage space? Most likely because he's gonna load it with music and video content. So the idea to offer free digital movies with a high-capacity drive makes sense.
Seagate today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Paramount Pictures to offer free downloadable movies with its 500GB FreeAgent Go portable hard drives.
Beginning today, consumers can look for specially-packaged versions of the hard drive that contain an activation code for users to download a digital copy of the 2009 movie Star Trek.
Users will also be given the option of downloading 20 other Paramount pictures for a one-time license key, an exclusive offer to purchasers of the 500GB drive.
Seagate and Paramount have set up a new digital distribution store at seagate.paramountshop.com where the activation key and special offer are valid.
"Collaborating with Seagate on this massive movie pre-load reinforces our commitment to embrace technologies that give consumers choice and flexibility in how they access and purchase their digital entertainment," said Paramount's VP in charge of digital distribution, Malik Ducard.
